    About The Book

    “Moondog is one of America’s great originals.” — Alan Rich, New York Magazine

    Here is one of the most improbable lives of the twentieth century: a blind and homeless man who became the most famous eccentric in New York and who, with enormous diligence, rose to prominence as an internationally respected music presence.

    Born Louis Thomas Hardin in 1916, Moondog first made an impression in the late 1940s when he became a mascot of The New York Philharmonic at Carnegie Hall. His unique, melodic compositions were released on the Prestige jazz label. In the late 1960s the Viking-garbed Moondog was a pop music sensation on Columbia Records. Moondog is the noted inspiration for the contemporary freak folk movement led by Devendra Banhart.

    Moondog’s compositional style influenced his former roommate, Philip Glass, whose Preface and performances of Moondog works appear in the book. Moondog’s work transcends labels and redefines the distinction between popular and high culture. A CD compilation with a variety of Moondog’s compositions is bound into the book.
